Japan Research Network Edinburgh - bringing together those working on any area of Japan

Together with colleagues at the University of Edinburgh, former Daiwa Scholar Dr Chris Harding is setting up a ‘Japan Research Network Edinburgh’. The Network’s aim is to bring together scholars working on any area of Japan – staff, researchers, and graduate students alike – via a website (JRNE.org ) where they can search for one another via name, institution, and research interests. They will also hold seminars in Edinburgh a few times per year. Their first will be given by Angus Lockyer, on 12th March 2015. Though they are particularly keen to get colleagues in Scotland and the north of England talking to and meeting one another, they would very much like to extend the invitation to scholars across the UK.
